ORIGIN: Chikmagalur, India

MUZIRIS BLACK PEPPER

We have sourced the best of the bunch from a 60-year-old family~run forested estate tucked away in Chikmagalur ~ within India’s Western Ghats, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 4th-generation coffee enthusiast & biologist, Ajoy Thipaiah, has devoted his adult life to conservation of the impressive 270 acre estate & his son, Pranoy, is devoting his time, energy & soul into studying & nurturing the vast diversity of flora & funga that makes their land ecologically unique. Porcupines often make unwanted visits & leaves after destructing the tender black pepper foliage. But such sights are a normal in a bio-diverse food forest, where also cluster figs, jackfruits, citrus trees, pomelos, mulberries along with hundreds of funga make merry together. Everyone is being monitored by the big brothers by the way - the Elephants, who passes by for a night-time patrol.
